4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ouija VINE VOICE on June 12, 2006
Format: Paperback
According to the author in her introduction, this book is a compendium of languid come-ons, snitty retorts, blase metaphysics, jaded declarations of love and histrionic expressions of lust from the movies.

If you like campy lines and quotes from great and horrid movies, you'll get a kick out of this book. There are a plethora of quotes from Bette Davis movies (i.e. "Mistress Throgmorton, is this your pet swine?" from the Virgin Queen), Joan Crawford, Valley of the Dolls and the list goes on. Topics include cheap women, food and drink, history and love, of course.

It's pretty funny, and a nice variety of movies are represented. It's worth the money.
